Boxed Windows Washcloth Pattern


The texture created by raised and lowered knitted and purl stitches are what provides the pattern in this washcloth. The simple pattern knits up quickly. After the first patterns repeat, it is possible to see where the design is going and you may not need to refer to the pattern for each row. The repeating squares give a strong graphic element to the design. The inner part of each square is a bit of a rectangle that forms a square with the border that is around it.

Since it is entirely made of knit and purl stitches, this project is suitable for beginners. The solid fabric when knit in all cotton worsted weight yarn creates a gentle and soft cloth that would be especially suited to personal use, although it could certainly be used for household cleaning tasks as well.

Worsted weight cotton yarn is available at most large craft retailers and also at many smaller local yarn stores. Several colors and prints are available to help you coordinate to décor or personal taste.

Materials: 2 ozs or more of 100% cotton worsted weight yarn . Lion Cotton yarn was used to create the sample
